The Agri Shakti 10L is an agricultural drone that can fly for up to 15 minutes at maximum capacity and supports a 10-liter spray tank capable of spraying 1 acre in approximately 7 minutes.

In order to support and contribute towards Honorable Prime minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji’s vision of supporting the farmers of the country, OUS is launching the Agri Shakti 10L at a starting price of 2.25 lakhs plus GST.

The Vajra QC P20 is a precision agriculture and mapping drone which weighs about 2 kg and boasts a flight duration of 30+ minutes. The drone has a maximum range of 4 km with a survey area of 0.5 to 1 sq. km. The Vajra QC P20 can perform a wide array of tasks in precision agriculture i.e., optimizing crop health, yields, leading to sustainable farming. The drone is also ideal for mapping farmlands for the Insurance industry to access damage to the crop in event of natural calamities.

With the help of the above drones, OUS will be offering services focused on precision agriculture, pesticides/fertilizer spraying. The drone-based service will utilize a hub and spoke model to bring efficiency, cost-effectiveness and speed to agricultural practices in India.

Optiemus Infracom will be investing around INR 140 Crore in this project and targeting a service revenue of around INR 600 to INR 900 crores by the end of calendar year 2025.

The main goal for OUS is to align with Honorable Prime minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji’s vision of “Make in India” and contribute towards the prosperity of farmers who are the backbone of the country. With this focus, OUS will develop drones with indigenous parts. The company targets to achieve a minimum of 65% indigenization and plans to increase this target up to 75% by the end of this financial year.
